(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: I Love…

I love…

… incredible student makeup at IMATS. So inspiring!

… glitter and rainbows (Lit Cosmetics display at IMATS Toronto).

… finding unique eyeshadow shades (Joe Fresh Eyeshadow in Pagoda, $4 from the Fall collection).

… jewel tones (YSL Palette in Nº 11 Midnight Garden, $72 from Fall 2011 collection).

… anything by Giorgio Armani (Giorgio Armani Madre Perla Face and Eye Palette, $150 from the Holiday collection).

… cats.  This guy is a Burmese kitteh and he has such a pretty face.

… my own cat, Scherbatsky of course. Hi Scherbie!

… this boy, who is now my fiancé 🙂 (Photo taken at Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of the highlights of my summer).

… and taking silly photos.

I’m not very chatty today, but hopefully all these beautiful and happy pictures made you smile. 🙂  How are you?

  • LOL Love the last pic – why so violent? 😉

    • Haha no I’m just testing how strong he really is, Paris. 🙂

  • LOVE the last two pics of you and your beau! You guys are so perfect together! I wish you all the BEST!

    • Aww thanks Tracy! 🙂 In my dreams I’d have you, my beauty blogger friends, at the reception. It’s possible yes?

  • Why does Scherbie have such a derpy look on her face? is Pucky’s derpy-ness rubbing off on her?

    • A-ha! That’s why I like that pic of Scherbie. She looks like Pucky there. 🙂

    Oh my god Arianne, you and your fiance are so cute, you look really happy together! Congrats! Melts my cold (preternaturally) jaded stone heart.

    • LOL Aja, you’re hilarious! Thank you. 🙂

  • Aww, you and the fiancé looks so sweet together :).

    The YSL palette is stunning and LOOOVE the makeup in the first photo! Hopefully I can be *that* creative when I go to school :).

    • When do you start school Dani? 🙂 So excited for you!

  • Awww, your kitties are adorable!!! And oh man…your make-up product pics definitely had me drooling. So pretty! And you and your fiance are adorable. Love that last picture!

    • Only one kitteh Tiffany; the black one is ours. 🙂 Aren’t all these products so drool-worthy? I love them.

  • Thanks for the pics!! They’re great – you, your fiance and Scherbie make a cute family!!

    • Thanks Jamilla. 🙂 We drive each other crazy sometimes, but most of the time it’s gooood.

  • I have three things to say.

    1. OMG that YSL palette.
    2. Sherbs!
    3. How adorbz are the two of you!? Love it.

    • Thanks Lindsay! You know, that YSL palette… I have a love/hate relationship with. The colours are really sheer unless you put it over a good base (LA Splash Glitter base is amazing!).

      • Really? Okay. So I’m less excited about it then. How disappointing! I feel like you’d only buy those colours if you wanted a really opaque punch of colour. Tsk, tsk, tsk YSL.

  • Ahhh so cute, I love your photos 🙂 Are you used to saying “fiance” yet? 😉

    • No. I now refer to him as “the boy.” 😛 Or “hey.”

  • Cute post and what a great idea! 😀

    • Thanks Lindsay. 🙂 I’m happy you enjoyed it.

  • you guys are SO adorable! Happy smiley pics 🙂

    • I was surprised when he did that last photo. He’s usually very camera shy. 😛

  • big congratulations on your engagement!!! woo hoo!!!! that’s such an exciting and fun time of life to go through all of the fun wedding planning and festivities- you willl no doubt be a gorgeous bride!!

    • Thanks JennySue! We haven’t really started planning since there are things I have to take care of before we can get married at the church. But 2013 will be the year. 🙂

  • Danielle

    You two are SO freakin’ cute together. Can I bottle you up please?!?! I promise to feed you lots of warm rice. and makeup.

    • LOL that’s good; we consume a lot of rice. 🙂

  • Aja

    Me again… Arianne, do you have any product suggestions to mitigate shininess? i have olive skin and no matter what I put on my face, by noon my forehead is shining like the top of the chrysler building. I could be a one woman light house based on my forehead shine alone. Anything you would recommend (mattifiers, etc)? Thanks girl!

    • Hi Aja. For oil control I love love LOVE Cover FX. Their Clear Prep FX primer is the best (I reviewed it… give it a search!). Then blot throughout the day with the Matte FX blotting powder, and Starbucks napkins! 😉 I heard other people have good experience with MAC Blot powder as well.

      Also when you do your makeup, make sure to set your makeup with translucent powder, THEN give it a quick pass of the blotting powder. That should keep ya matte. I know, because my skin is naturally shiny as well. Hope that helps!

  • Lena

    Awww, congratulations! Have a great December!

  • True love, kitties and makeup! Woo!

    • The best, right Eden-Avalon? 🙂

  • Linda

    Yes, your photos made me smile. You do look great together and the cats look adorable. Thank you for showing pieces of your adventures.

  • Gorgeous photos! Drooling over the Armani palette – but I CANNOT GO THERE RIGHT NOW. Ahhhh!

    You guys are so cute! I love the last pic! 😀

  • Those photos did make me smile! Esp the beautiful kittehs and the photos of you and your boy fooling around 🙂
